For something so small it causes a lot of problems... Before the surgery DH & I spoke with the Consultant and he gave us a plan of action. As DH had not had any contact from the hospital since being discharged (despite being told he would have an appointment within 1-2 weeks) he contacted them.
The plan has now changed, but nobody told us!!!! On Monday I will be taking DH to one of the local hospitals for them to use Ultrasound to shatter his stone. DH had a long chat with one of the Drs from urology last night who explained the procedure in detail.
On one hand it is good to know that something will be happening, on the other hand the whole process will not be a nice one, especially for DH. Not surprisingly he is getting rather anxious about the whole procedure - in turn this is rubbing off onto me.
I am trying very hard to stay positive, but it is not always easy. I know that if I start thinking negatively, my anxiety could spiral out of control - and it has been so good lately. DH needs me to be strong, but if my anxiety grips hold, I focus totally on me & me alone. So I MUST remain positive, regardless how helpless I might feel and regardless of how anxious DH gets before/during Monday.
In the mean time I am asking for any spare Angels to help us both and thinking POSITIVE thoughts:
- 'On Tuesday it will all be over'
- 'I am a strong & loving person'
- 'I won't let the anxiety drag me down'
